La differenza Perino

Perino vuol dire una serie di primati per i sensi. Così morbida da librarsi come nebbia sull'orizzonte del corpo. Così leggera da creare volume senza peso. Così calda da ottenere il massimo risultato con il minimo ingombro. Come una silhouette caliginosa all'alba, questi capi hanno un caratteristico strato simile ad un'aura che non produce pressoché nessun pilling e dà la sensazione di poter durare per sempre.

Tutela e protezione

Sagoma di felci
